Christoph Eschenbach, conductor

“I've always been deeply interested, indeed passionate, about helping and supporting young talent. Marc-André Dalbavie, the prince of French composers, introduced Dimitri to me. I listened to him and found all the elements for a career in music.”
Christoph Eschenbach

Russian cellist, Dimitri Maslennikov is an exceptional and a gifted virtuoso who can boast a whole list of concert performances with renowned orchestras and conductors at the end of this three-year scholarship awarded by the French government. Christoph Eschenbach has taken the young Russian under his wing and Phoenix Edition is delighted to present this recording of Shostakovich’s cello concertos. Christoph Eschenbach and the NDR Symphony Orchestra accompany Maslennikov on his journey through on of the most difficult masterpieces of cello literature, a reverential tribute to the Russian composer.
